"Adding Wine..."

January 13, 2004  |  By graffix

 |  Version: Bochs 2.1


This review was originally posted on
on top of Bochs will only turn the speed from slow to 'glacial', due to the extra layer of emulation needed... although I hardly see the need for Wine since it's an emulation layer for x86 Linux to run Windows apps...
Virtual PC is a few magnitudes better than this application... save yourself the time and effort and buy that instead... you'll only be disappointed if you buy this one expecting anything resembling 'adequate' performance.
